I don't want the pro becuase its too expensive!(so my parents think)

Hey congrats,

The Macbook is really a nice machine, I really like mine and going for the 2GB RAM option was a wise choice, it really comes in handy when running some demanding applications like Microsoft Office or VMware

I use mine every day, and maxing the ram is the only way to roll.

I know I can't wait I get paid 2mrw and my parents said they'll pay what ever money I'm short with I can't wait! I think I'll get a case to cover it!

Cool. It's a wonderful laptop. I always enjoyed working summers as a teenager, saving up over several months for something big and cool.

Word of advice - save some money and buy the extra RAM separately from the MacBook. You'll save money and get the full lifetime warranty on the RAM, which doesn't always apply to OEM (came with the machine) RAM.
Sell or send me your vintage Mac things if you don't want them.

Cool, I got the same computer a few weeks ago. Although mine only has 1GB of RAM it's still a great machine. I agree with shifuiman, you should check out places like dealram.com to help you save money on RAM.

Slick shoes?! Are you crazy?!
